Neil McCarthy and special guests

a mighty night with the mighty poet,

the big banter from galway, international man of mistery,

histery and blisstory, .. come, relax, listen and enjoy..


studied English Literature at the National University of Ireland in Galway and began writing poetry when he realised he was useless at playing the guitar. His first publications appeared in local magazines and after influences and experiences in South America, Australia, Central Asia and Scandinavia, his work has since appeared in magazines and journals that include The New York Quarterly (USA), The SHOp (Ireland), The Dalhousie Review (Canada), Poetry Salzburg Review (Austria), Helikon (Hungary), Dream Catcher (UK) and Blue Dog (Australia). He has recited solo, played with musicians and charmed audiences at three consecutive Prague Fringe Festivals, performed in NY, Los Angeles, Denver, Dublin, Melbourne, Krakow, Vienna, Budapest, read at embassies, delivered lectures in foreign universities and various living rooms. He is the author of three chapbooks of poetry, all of which are not available, but he hopes it won’t be long until he has a full length book of poems available for purchase or barter. He is a mean pool shark and pound for pound the best Boggle player in America. He currently lives in Vienna.
